Andy's Birthday

Our beautiful Andy is three years old today. He is enjoying his new toy. It is really hard to believe it has been three years. I remember when we brought him home. He came to us at seven weeks old because his mother could no longer nurse him; he had too many teeth. Andy is very protective and loving. He is constantly wagging his tail; I have never seen a dog so happy all the time. And curious! Whenever we get a package in the mail he wants to be the first one in the box to see what it is.

It is a busy time of year on the St. Lawrence River. There are many pleasure crafts and lakers that run up and down the river through the locks carrying cargo. The first time I saw a Laker coming from each side and meeting each other it was amazing to me. They would blow their horns to let the other know where they were. One would stand aside and let the other pass. I still never get tired of seeing them after almost 30 years.

My Experience

I don't know how many of you out there use "Dish" for tv reception. I would like to share my experience with them:
To start with we use to have Cable and really liked it. But the provider kept adding channels that no one would watch and the bill kept getting higher and higher. At this point we had cable for over 20 years and thought maybe they could give us some kind of special or something. They had been running sales on the tv about all their wonderful packages. Sorry to say we got no help so we decided to brave the waters and try Dish. You have to sign a two year contract with these folks before you get connected. We were told the reception would be really good. Now I am here to tell you exactly what we went through for those two years. Everytime the wind blew strangly or a even the tiniest of clouds moved over head in the sky we had no reception. Not to mention the many times they were out here doing service calls plus all the ice build up on the dish on the roof. (My husband got sick of that really fast). After our two years was up we called and they sent another tech out. By this time none the the local channels were working. (News and etc..) The man that came out told us we should never have had Dish to begin with. His exact words were "You were destined to fail". He said we had no line of sight to the house. He also told us within a week we would lose all the premium channels. He recommended we try "Direct TV". So far so good. But the crazy thing is; when I called Dish to tell them we no long had line of sight the girl told me "You can always have it shut off for six months so when the trees lose their leaves you can watch the set again."
Just thought I would share this.

A friend of mine and I were looking through our files to see what we could come up with to make this blog a little more unusual. I have come up with several anmated eyes that I really like. The ones that I use on my desktop are alot bigger than this . What do you think of these?
